A local TV news station in Arizona is apologizing after airing a graphic showing Katie Hobbs, the Democratic nominee for governor, as the winner in her race 12 days out from the midterm elections.

The graphic, which appeared Thursday afternoon on FOX 10 Phoenix at the bottom left-hand part of the screen, showed Hobbs with 53% support compared to 47% for Republican nominee Kari Lake. Hobbs, who is currently Arizona's secretary of state, had a check by her number, indicating she was the victor.

"At 5:50p during the Fox 10 newscast today a small graphic appeared on the lower left side of the screen showing test results for the upcoming election. These were generated by the Associated Press which distributes results to clients," FOX 10 said in a pair of tweets. "This graphic was never meant to go on air — the numbers were only part of a test. The station has taken steps to make sure this cannot happen again."

It does seem a bit premature...
